There’s a big old galvanisers yard next door to our workshop, and like a lot of British manufacturers, they had to close down recently. Thankfully, our landlord has given it new life – not as student flats or boring offices, but as an incredible creative space – a venue, a market, a concert hall – a place to bring people together and inspire them.
And it’s already being put to good use. Last weekend saw the launch of the first monthly Hypermarket – a high-quality, curated design market with street food, dj’s and workshops. Our founder, Alec, had the pleasure of curating the retail space this time around, and we welcomed over twenty amazing brands and nearly four thousand people for a weekend of great food, good chat and a wee bit of retail therapy! Thanks to everyone who came along.
Here are some photos of the event, courtesy of Brian Sweeney.
The Hypermarket will take place on the last weekend of every month at the Galvanisers, so keep your eyes peeled.
This month, the Art Car Boot Sale!
